Netia partners with Arris on new TV offerings

Polish telco and IPTV service provider Netia is working with Arris to deliver new TV offerings over recently acquired cable networks. 

The fixed line operator will use various Arris networking solutions to provide scalable network infrastructure to support its growing TV customer base.

The Arris C4 CMTS and Arris HFC solutions will be integrated by Vector, a value added reseller for Arris in Poland. Steve McCaffery, senior vice-president, EMEA, for Arris, said that these solutions would allow Netia to “cost-effectively manage its current network transition while keeping an eye on the future.”

In April, Netia signed a deal with UPC Polska to buy a part of the former Aster cable operator’s network – an agreement that includes network capacity in Warsaw and Krakow.

The firm said in August that it is gearing up to launch commercial cable TV services from early 2014.

In separate Arris news, the firm announced yesterday that GCI, Alaska’s largest telecoms company, has successfully deployed the Arris E6000 Converged Edge Router, while US internet and cable TV provider WOW! has also selected the E6000 to deliver faster speeds and greater network coverage to its 700,000 subscribers.
